Preakness Stakes Trophy and Track History

The original Woodlawn Vase, the trophy awarded to the winner of the Preakness Stakes trophy (but not meant to be kept), measures 34 inches in height and weighs 29 pounds, 12 ounces, was created by Tiffany and Company in 1860 for R. Aitcheson Alexander and remains in the Baltimore Museum of Art. A half-sized reproduction of the Woodlawn Vase is now awarded to the owner of the Preakness winner on a permanent basis.

Rumor has it that the Woodlawn Vase spent the Civil War years buried to avoid being stolen or used for its valuable metal properties by Union and Confederate soldiers.
